“It is fair to say that response to the redecorated schools has been enthusiastic. The reactions of the children are of special interest. It seems, for example, that a greater degree of cleanliness and carefulness follows automatically, especially among the junior children. Light colours are respected and are not damaged. Old prejudices have been overcome to a surprising extent. Teachers appreciate the practical improvements and are certainly conscious of the more pleasant character created, though not always able to define it”
